Abstract
Candidiasis has emerged as the most common opportunistic fungal disease over recent decades owing to the progressively increasing use of antibiotics, immunosuppressive and cytotoxic drugs, indwelling foreign bodies and organ transplantation. Hematogenous candida endophthalmitis, which has a characteristic finding of single or multiple fluffy white cotton ball-like chorioretinal lesions often extending into vitreous, is the most fulminant manifestation of systemic candidiasis and may result in blindness. These ocular lesions can be easily recognized on funduscopic examination and should be serially looked for in all patients with known and suspected systemic candidiasis. We report hematogenous candida endophthalmitis in a patient of systemic candidiasis and, to our knowledge, it is the first reported case in our country.
